Pros: Helpful examples, Well-written

Best Uses: Intermediate

Describe Yourself: Educator, Designer

I enjoyed reading this book and being challenged in how we present both our own image as a presenter and also that of the organisation we represent. Slide:ology gave me some new ideas on how to visually present content that is often complex in a simpler format. The book gives some excellent examples of before and after slide designs and how some of the big companies design their presentations. Slie:ology also gives a great insight into the fact that a great presentation is no accident and takes time to design, create and refine. This book never claims to be a book on learning PowerPoint and this is true. It is a book on how to design and layout presentations in a smarter and clearer format. The book is worth a read if you are looking to be challenged and want to improve the power of your presentation visuals.
